Working with leaders to develop emotional intelligence skills.
“Do you direct the intention and energy of your emotions at will, regardless of the circumstances?” Even in difficult circumstances, emotions can be powerful allies. Then why do our emotional responses often elicit negative outcomes, eroding our leadership, relationships, influence and well-being? It goes back to intention and conscious communication.
Research shows that emotional intelligence (EQ) increases personal effectiveness, creates a competitive advantage, increases performance, and improves organizational outcomes. But just knowing something does not translate into the ability to transfer that knowing into your leadership. While it is helpful to be smart, experienced and well-trained, a leader who is not emotionally intelligent will not be a great leader.
To increase your EQ, participants will complete an emotional intelligence assessment and identify key areas of development from the results. Building a strong foundation of understanding how mind, body and emotions are connected, an examination of the 5 primary emotions will allow you to see how those emotions affect your leadership, communication patterns and relationships.
The “Leadership through Emotional Intelligence” program became a national model for the US Forest Service.
